The pair walked the red carpet arm-in-arm three months after photos of them cuddling with Tessa Thompson puzzled the internet.
Three months after setting social media on fire with photos of them engaging in some serious PDA with Tessa Thompson, Rita Ora, and Taika Waititi have made their relationship red carpet official.
The pair showed up at the debut of The Suicide Squad in Los Angeles on Monday, posing on the step and repeat with their arms intertwined, smiling broadly at both the cameras and one another. This denotes the first occasion when they’ve shown up as a couple.
Bits of hearsay that Ora and Waititi were sincerely elaborate initially started in April after the pop star shared an open shot of them embracing on Instagram. She inscribed the photograph slideshow, “Happy occasions, recollections, irregular things on my telephone and the ones I love,” with a red heart emoticon.

Ora was previously linked to filmmaker Romain Gavras, while, in 2018, Waititi split from his wife of seven years with whom he shares two children, Chelsea Winstanley.
In May, Ora and the director’s relationship seemed all but confirmed after paparazzi photos were published by the Daily Mail that showed them cuddling and kissing outside of Waititi’s home in Sydney, Australia with Thompson and Australian model Zac Stenmark.
In one shot, the singer and Thompson—who stars in Thor: Love and Thunder directed by Waititi—can be seen kissing while sitting on either side of the filmmaker.
In another, the group shares a laugh as Waititi wraps his arms around both women. When questioned about the viral photos by The Sydney Morning Herald in June, the director confessed that he was “not really” upset by the media frenzy surrounding the images. “I think in the world of the internet, everything goes away pretty quick,” he said. “And also, is it that big a deal? No, not really. I was doing nothing wrong. It’s fine.”
